A Provo man has been charged with exposing himself to a 5-year-old girl at a South Salt Lake building that houses a public library and charter school.
Robert Peter Ritt, 72, of Provo, was charged Wednesday in 3rd District Court with lewdness involving a child, a third-degree felony. Authorities enhanced the charge because Ritt has a prior child lewdness conviction in 4th District Court.
South Salt Lake police said after Ritt exposed himself to the girl Nov. 2 at the Columbus Center (2450 S. 500 East), she ran and told her parents what had happened. They called police about the incident, which was captured on surveillance video.
